Storyboard Animatic – Mystic Wood

Above is my final project (animatic) for my Storyboard class in the fall. Overall I’m pretty happy with it, although I’ll admit I may have gotten a little carried away… for something that was only supposed to be an animatic, I mean. All imagery was drawn in Photoshop using my tablet and compiled in Premiere.

The class was given complete creative freedom for this assignment, which I thought was wonderful. Unfortunately, so much freedom meant that I struggled to pick a premise and stick with it… Too many ideas to choose from. Finally, I turned to music for answers, as I often find inspiration in music for cinema. In the end I chose Mystic Hood published by It was the final, closing notes of the song that inspired that final, closing shot. I essentially worked backward from there.
